Glossy tile floors, natural stone-look floors, warm-tone wood grains and traditional carpeting.
But, Stone & Tile Gallery — Suntree and Viera’s only tile, stone, and wood gallery located at 7965 N. Wickham Road — doesn’t just offer custom flooring. It also designs and installs exquisite backsplashes, colorful stone walls and countertops, modern bathrooms and alluring patios.
The family-owned business is co-owned by two couples — Kelly and Fernando Barros and Ericarla Demelo and her husband, Mauricio Souza. The couples, who have been friends for several years, each had 15 years of separate design and installation experience and decided to go into business together. They speak three languages: English, Spanish and Portuguese.
Kelly Barros and Demelo are experienced interior design consultants. They can show how a tile backsplash can be used to creatively highlight a fireplace, how a stone wall can give a room character and how marble pavers can turn an ordinary home into a lavish-looking one.
It’s all about seeing the bigger picture and having a creative eye to make a room come alive.
“We try to teach our customers about variation,” said Kelly Barros, showing people the end result when it comes to how their new floor will look once completed — because not every tile or plank of wood that comes from the manufacturer looks the same.
“We carry unique materials,” added Kelly Barros. “Like marble pavers, materials world-wide.”
And, they also keep up with the trends, recognizing what’s in style.
“Wood-look tile is especially popular right now,” Demelo said.
Stone & Tile Gallery provides all customers with a free estimate.
“It’s really a one-stop shop,” said Leticia Barros, the Barros’ daughter, who helps in the showroom on weekends. “We turn your house into a home.”
